Editor’s Note: This story is one of the runner-ups of the My Cash4Books Story Contest. We asked our customers to tell us a little about themselves and their textbook selling experiences in their own words.
My name is Katherine and I have two little girls (2 under 2!), Adelyn and Ellie. I am 26 years old and I am a stay-at-home mom. To make ends meet for my family, I have taken on a part time bookkeeper position that allows me to work from home, along with a few babysitting jobs on the side. As any stay-at-home mom would tell you, being a mom is a full time job in itself!
As a college graduate, I completely understand the frustration and dread of walking into the campus bookstore and preparing to fork out more cash than your college self has ever spent on books (Books you would sometimes rarely end up using in class!). I totally had sticker shock that first semester! And then, to make matters worse, going back to the bookstore at the end of the semester to sell your books and realizing you will never get back even close to what you originally spent. Frustrating! Depressing.
I discovered Cash4Books during my search to sell textbooks back online. I needed some extra spending cash to put towards groceries and diapers and I knew I had several textbooks collecting dust in my garage. Cash4Books.net was offering the highest sellback price on a couple textbooks (by about $10 higher than other websites!). They even offer great promo codes to earn extra money back when selling textbooks. I love that! The website is clean and extremely easy to use. The 3 easy steps to complete shipment are so simple. My two year old excitedly helped hold the shipping label and packing slip after they printed.
“What are you doing mommy?” she asked.
“I just made us some money,” I replied smiling.
As a runner-up, Katherine has received a 15% Cash4Books bonus code.
